03:49-3:57        Titles and Credits

03:58-04:35      VISUALIZATION

            Spread of Low-Level Ozone    Courtesy of NCAR

This atmospheric chemistry model helps scientists track the global spread of low-level ozone (green) and nitrogen oxides (blue).

04:36-05:30      Animation -- The Greenhouse Effect.   Earth's atmosphere acts like a greenhouse, letting in the sun's energy but trapping heat radiated by the Earth.

04:46    Top of Earth close up

04:50    Arrows from atmosphere hitting Earth and then bouncing off

04:57    Top of Earth close up

05:02    Earth rotation with black space as background

05:05    The Greenhouse Effect

05:06    Greenhouse Gases/Surface Temperature

05:08    Incoming solar radiation

05:10    Reemitted radiation

05:12    Radiation emitted into space-absorbed radiation

05:18    Arrows


05:30-6:30      VISUALIZATION

            PRECIPITABLE WATER VAPOR

            Courtesy of NCAR

            Water vapor in the atmosphere is predicted to increase as the climate warms.   Scientists are studying changes in water vapor using visualizations like this one from the NCAR Climate System Model.

CCM3/T170 NCAR/CRIEPI   July 5-31


06:31    VISUALIZATION

            Air Flow through Hurricanes courtesy of COMET

This graphic depicts the typical circulation of a mature hurricane.   Air enters at low levels rises through the eye, and emerges from the top of the storm as outflow.

06:41    Outflow

06:46    Eye/eyewall

06:58    Inflow

07:07    Outflow

08:26    ANIMATION

El Nino and La Nina Evolution Cross-Section

In El Nino, warm waters spread eastward across the tropical Pacific.   In La Nina, the warm waters retreated westward and cold upwelling increases to the east.
